I've never gone down for Gay Days, so I don't know if the events are centered on any given park on any given day.

Again, they'll be thrilled to party with everybody, but they won't be super-thrilled to stand in longer lines unnecessarily.
Last time I went in 2010, the majority of the Gay Days crowd leaves the parks afternoon to attend the pool parties. So if you plan on getting to the park late in the day on the scheduled day, you won't find many red shirts in the parks.

Is anyone staying at the Yacht Club? Anyone want to do a Yacht/Beach/Boardwalk meet?

Haven't been to Gay Days in years, and can't wait. But seems like they are more disorganized than in the early days.

And of course there used to be Pleasure Island, which was endless fun, and now.....nothing.....

Anyone know anything about this Epcot Party on Sunday?

Thanks everyone.

I've only been to Orlando gay days one time. I have been regularly attending Anaheim gay days for a few years now. From what I've seen, Orlando's isn't as intimate as Anaheim's. It'd be nice if they offered shirts like Anaheim does.

I think you should take in Riptide as that was a lot of fun last year. Also, the Epcot resort's are all stunning!

Potentially silly question....

So excited about our 2nd Gay Days trip! I have a really ridiculous question that I hope isn't disrespectful. If I wear one of the rainbow Mickey Mouse pins as a show of support for my 17yr old son, is that disrespectful since I'm not gay? Is there a better way for me to show my support and love for him during our trip? I have been an adamant gay rights supporter my whole life and I am blessed with my son-this amazing, wonderful young man who I just couldn't love more or be more proud of... Thanks for your help!!

Gosh, what a horrible time to host an event outdoors. Here in Phoenix our gay pride parade and celebration was moved to the month of April because it is unbearable to be outside for more than 30 minutes with the head. Florida should follow suit.

Was wondering if anyone is doing the t-dance at Epcot on Sunday? A few years ago ended the night at the Pub filled with bears and that was a highlight. It gets very raunchy in there for disney standards.

btw I am Jose.

There is a bit about the tea dance at Epcot under a thread titled "DATW" - Drink Around The World. We were thinking of going, but I have a feeling it might be full of circuit queens.

LOVE how even within the community we have to marginalize and insult others...

I've decided to go this year. I'll be a solo traveler staying at the Swan May 30 - June 2. So I'm interested in a Boardwalk/Swan/Dolphin meet up!
